IMHO, I guess it is the fluid that make's you float over our pot holes
ridden road....an essential bottle of tonic....especilly if you want to
keep "floating"....

I hope i am not too far from being right :)

wmsoo,

i guess it (LHM) is Xantia's greenish Hydraulic fluids which you need to
change often for optimum suspension reliability.

we can actually add to the list.... I know a lot.. and lets keep the ball
rolling..

14. We race only on winding roads, to take advantage of good road
handling... straight line, we got tapaued.. and claim that what the Japs
specialty..

15. We belanja our machanic to make sure they take care of your car..and
say it thats you and your mechanics are more than friends..

16. Very few of us buy brand new CITROEN.. we wait to be second hand
owners as the second hand value drops too quickly...

17. We put up a budget every month for repairs.. sometimes 1/2 of monthly
payments..

18. Even though how expensive the charges are, you still claim it is
cheaper than Alfa and Fiats.. and comparable to Proton..

19. Always claim proton buyers do not know what is 'Value for Money'..

20. We pray for at least 1/2 before long journey for the car not to break
down..

here's one more...

21. You hang around forums like this and post mesgs like "Re: signs that you are a
citroen
owner"

22. Your phone bills look as though you are having an affair with the mechanic (just as
well we dun have female mechs here)

23. Your gf/wife threatens separation if you MENTION the word "CITROEN" again...

24. You defend the Citroen tooth and nail the moment somebody says that "it's expensive
to maintain" or "parts are difficult to find" or "no good wan lar"

25. You also carry a spare bottle of battery water, engine oil, brake fluid, ATF, and
several bottles of water

26. You have a full complement of tools to open each and every nut, bolt, hex screw,
and torx screw and you have a multimeter in hand to test each and every circuit.

27. The moment you open your mouth about Citroen the word comfort, handling
and power comes out...despite the repairs involved.

I suspect most citroen "enthusiasts" own a second car which they can
always fall back on. What is your second car?
